Wrong answer in this ZIO problem

Hello Guys ,

Today I was solving ZIO 2005 , Q5 and I was getting wrong answer for b and c subtasks and even after verifying many times I am unable to find a fault in this
I will attach the picture of my calculations . Here it is :

b subtask :

c subtask :

I solved this problem by both brute force and dijkstra algorithm and still the answer is coming out to be same
Have i done any mistake in calculating the energy required for each slope or is the answer wrong ?

Someone pls help me with this
Thanks a lot !

Hello @sudheerays123,
I also was getting the same answer when i solved it a few weeks ago. I think the answer for these subtask is given wrong in the answers.

Hello @sumit_king ,

i got to know my mistake ,

We need not go in the maximum speed which is given , he can go in any speed smaller than or equal to the maximum speed .
Suppose for the b subtask and 8th slope ,
if he goes in 60 speed then energy required is 200 while if he goes in 50 speed then the energy required is 100

We have to be careful from next time
